Pakucho is lusciously soft, and lofty. This spinning fibre is both Organic and Fair Trade, it comes from Peru.
Grown on small farmyard plots by rural artisan and Indigenous families, native cotton cultivation supports self-help development programs for the benefit of peasant communities and urban women’s migrant co-operatives. In the High Jungle of Peru, native cotton has already replaced several thousand hectares of clandestinely cultivated coca leaf from which the fatally addicting cocaine paste is synthesized. Today, hundreds of Indigenous farmers benefit from the revival of native and organically grown cotton.
